Game version 4.006 discussion: Deferred Shading, Yak-9, SU-152, New Campaigns, 4K for 4 planes

Dear friends,

Around a month has passed since the previous humongous update and we have another right here. Its changelist is not as so hideously long (it is still too long, however - more than 80 items), but some of them are quite important. First of all, two new Collector Planes are released, Yak-9 and Yak-9T.

......................................

For Tank Crew customers this update adds a long-awaited Zveroboy ("Beast Slayer") - self-propelled heavy howitzer (assault gun) SU-152

......................................

This update also includes three new Scripted Campaigns – Kaiserschlacht, Spring Offensive and Lightning Strikes.

......................................

While new aircraft, tanks and campaigns are the lead stars of our sim, the most important change in this update is the release of the new graphics rendering engine based on Deferred Shading.

......................................

Thanks to Martin =ICDP= Catney we have the external textures of 4 more existing aircraft in 4K quality:

......................................

These huge additions aren't all - the update 4.006 brings many others which are also important. 

......................................

23. The new pilot model has a sidearm (press RCtrl+4 when the cockpit is open). Pilots of the other aircraft will receive it when their models are updated;

Looking forward to Scharfi doing an ace in a flight video with the pistol.

All, if you have an older graphics card like me, you might experience issues like pictured above because the lighting changes. The screenshots do not capture what is fully going on, but the buggy looking squares flicker when in-game.

 

My solution to this is to change your Antialiasing setting to FXAA to MSAA. If this doesn't for you, I'm afraid I don't know what else could fix it.

Good job guys, incredible graphical detail. Very well done on the transition to deferred... and so much late time grinding to get it out and keep the promise! We know how late it was in Moscow when you guys pushed the Update. 😁

 

 

P.S. The new planes look great, and the Jak-9T's cannon is out of this world. Whoever doesn't get this thing during the sale that is still ongoing right now, can only blame himself later. If you want the biggest gun on the block, look no further.

Alright...for me it's crashing when starting quick mission, never had any problems before. I'll see at the morning if this was just my problem.

76. Ground vehicle AIs can't spot targets through a dense enough forest (if at least 50m of the line of sight to a target travels through the forest area);

 

Thanks! :yahoo:Will try it right now 🧐

Was having this same issue with an RX470, thanks for the tip!

I've just downloaded the Upgrade 4.006... but when I want to start my game, I get the first screen and it goes out of the game. (I have the steam version).
Let me know if your game is ok or if your having the same problem, thx!!!

First thing, do a restart! :) After that there are a lot of options to go over in the settings!
